This rejuvenating skin treatment is the perfect solution for tired, drab, environmentally-damaged, sagging skin: the ingredients actually regenerate your cells, helping your skin to feel soft and smooth as a rose petal. INGREDIENTS 2 teaspoons hazelnut oil 2 teaspoons unrefined rosehip seed oil 2 teaspoons unrefined avocado oil 2 drops balsam Peru essential oil 4 drops neroli essential oil 2 drops palmarosa essential oil 2 drops rose otto essential oil 1. Place ingredients in a small dark-brown glass bottle with a tightly-fitting screw-top lid. Shake to blend. Allow to sit in a dark, cool, dry place for 2 weeks. 2. To use: clean your face with a natural moisturizing soap. Place 3 to 5 drops of the oil treatment in the palm of your hand and massage for 1 minute into your face and throat, twice a day.

Sounds aromatic to say the least. I will give anything a try to help relieve my dry tired skin. Where do you find your oils? Thanks of the tip. We young women need to keep each other posted for any anti aging remedies. Now if only you had a tip to stop the dang wild hairs on my chin from growing back LMAO!

I would drink soy mil, from what I read it could be low estrogen. Or get tested for endrocrine balance. Genetics is also a factor and may be nothing I can suggest in that case. Thanks for responding.

Sorry to butt in, however depending on your age, progesterone maybe what you need. You will find it in wild yam. Comes in creams to rub on your skin.

SmoothSkin - A photo of two ladies with smooth skin.
I love simple remedies to everyday problems, but I have never seen neroli,palmarosa and rose otto oil. Where can I find these ingredients and are they expensive? And I have one big question, if you start this treatment and are successful and you end up with the complexion you dreamed of having, what happens if you stop applying the oil...SS

www.aromantic.co.uk/info/neroli-oil.htm for the neroli oil www.alibaba.com/manufacturer/13584697/Sell_Palmarosa_Oil.html www.bulgarianroseotto.com/ Here are sites and am not sure about the prices. You might find them on Ebay and normally a 1/2 oz does go a long way. Anything left to itself normally does not do well anyway. Consistency is the key. Good luck!!

The best source for pure therapuetic grade essential oils is www.youngliving.com. Sadly they can be fairly expensive, but usually a drop or two will do.

I have got to purchase some more essential oils. I have been low for a few weeks now but dont seem to have the extra cash. I will have to break down and purchase them. I hate to run out of them as they are so valuable to making my own products. Thanks for the recipe.

I hate seeing even a semblence of a wrinkle on the face.The treatment you have mentioned has lots of different oils in it.As my skin is dry i think this could be quite useful.

This sounds wonderful, thanks for sharing it. I like using natural skin care products because so often the retail products have chemicals or irritants in them. Thanks again :)
